Landis+Gyr believes in gender equity and partnerships

Gender mainstreaming is at the core of Landis+Gyr, a metering solutions company with 30% black women ownership.

According to Godfrey Marema, the firm’s chief operating officer, about 90% of the company’s workforce is women.

“We don’t only employ them in manufacturing but we also have engineers that are designing our meters,” he adds.

Marema notes that the company designs its product offering.

However, as a BEE company, he notes “the challenges we find in South Africa is that we don’t have a supplier base. We have to find black suppliers; we have to support them to make sure that they succeed”.
